As a new owner of a Silver '03, I have been studying these pages intently for info. I also have a GL 1200 but there seems to be a bit of difference :lol: I particularly have read the posts on belly pans with interest since the holes in the reservoir etc. would be something likely to happen to me. So the first item for my new bike was the Tulsa belly pan and I installed it today. For any who are wondering if its as easy as has been said, let me add that I don't see well close up and am not particularly mechanical minded. Once I read the instructions and understood what went where, the whole job took about 15 minutes. What a relief. Now I feel more confident about handling some of the other more difficult add ons. Particularly the ones that don't require me to lay on my side and look up under the bike. Also the Dzus fasteners worked easily. Thanks all for all the info and encouragement on this site.
